Europes healthcare systems supports trend for quality and quantity in ART

Madrid, Spain: Europe's systems for healthcare are generally more able to support couples seeking fertility treatment than anywhere else in the world, experts will tell the annual meeting of the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology today (Wednesday, 2 July).

Prof Karl Nygren and Dr Anders Nyboe Andersen, authors of the fourth ESHRE report on ART in Europe[1], will tell the conference that although there is wide variation between individual European countries, and in particular between the Nordic countries and the southern European countries, Europe performs about 60% of all assisted reproductive technology treatments in the world and ART is available to more couples in Europe than anywhere else.

Out of just under 500,000 ART treatment cycles performed worldwide in 2000, 275,187 cycles were carried out in 21 European countries reporting these data. The availability of fertility treatment for couples has steadily increased in Europe over the past four years. Prof Nygren, Associate Professor of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at Sofiahemmet Hospital in Stockholm, Sweden, will say: "Denmark is way ahead of everyone else with 1,826 cycles per million of the population performed in 2000. Out of all the children born in Denmark that year, 3.7% were ART babies. By comparison, in the USA there were approximately 250 cycles per million of the population performed. Europe appears to have embraced ART socially, ethically and legally and has incorporated it into its healthcare systems in a way that has made fertility treatment more easily available than anywhere else in the world."

Prof Nygren and Dr Nyboe Andersen, Head of the Fertility Clinic at the Rigshospitalet at Copenhagen University Hospital, Denmark, will be presenting the ESHRE report for the year 2000 the most recent figures available. It contains data from 21 European countries[2] and over 500 clinics. In 1997 there were about 200,000 treatment cycles i
